19 Races For Illini Midgets

MORRIS, Ill. — One of only two midget series east of the Rocky Mountains to feature both pavement and dirt tracks on the same schedule, the Illini Racing Series will hold 19 races this season spread across 16 weekends.

The dirt is represented by the most historic and revered midget track in the country — Angell Park Speedway and at Sycamore Speedway. The three pavement tracks on this year’s card feature the unofficial home of the IRS, Grundy County Speedway, Rockford Speedway and M40 Speedway in Jones, Mich. The trip to M40 on July 4 marks the first visit to the Wolverine state for the Illini midgets.

“The driver, team and car that wins this championship is definitely going to have to work for it,” said race director Loran Critchett Jr. “It’s a very diverse schedule. We are returning to many of the same tracks that we have been to for the last two years and we are also adding a new track that we are going to this year that we are really looking forward to and that is M40 Speedway in Jones, Michigan. We are going to be there for a two-day doubleheader over the Friday and Saturday July 4-5 holiday weekend. We are really looking forward to that. It should be a really good time with fireworks, a party and the whole nine yards.”

The Illini Racing Series is the original affordable midget racing series featuring exciting racing on multiple tracks with stock, production-based four-cylinder engines.
